Maybe doesn't sound much but I think Nkoudou can do a job for us. There's a bit of Lennon about him, if you're a defender you don't want a quick player running at you forcing you to tackle. Sometimes when we keep passing sideways, I'm thinking against Burnley and Swansea, he offers a different way of playing.

He's not even that quick. About as quick as lamela and right now as skilful as routledge

Looked good in pre season, got injured and I feel that's put him back a bit.

Not sure he works in a 3-4-2-1 though, more suited to a 4-2-3-1

I think with a bit of work he could play a wingback role

He reminds me a bit of a really young Marcelo. Always thinking about going forward but lacking a bit of bite and nous. All things that can be trained.

Danny Rose started out as LW. What's to stop GNK making the same transition? Would save us a few pennies and would put pressure on Rose to prove he deserves to come back. With the way Davies is playing, he'll need to do some proving.

Isn't he right footed?
